West Hill Wasps Under-8s were in action against Crediton Youth and Moors Madrid with coach Lee Perkins back having missed the previous weekend’s matches.

First up, against Crediton, Wasps began brightly and early chances were created, and spurned, by Charlie Williams and Sam Smart. Harry Murphy, playing some of his best football of the season on the left wing, was a constant thorn in the opposition’s side with some darting runs and precision passing. It was from one such pass that the ball found Smart and he weaved his way down the wing before crossing for Henry Fenner to open the scoring.

Crediton hit straight back, but found Wasps’ glovesman Jake Dunstan in terrific form, the goalkeeper making a couple of outstanding saves.

At the other end of the pitch Noah Clifton saw a goal-bound shot well saved by the Crediton glovesman.

After the break, and having made changes, Evan Perkins netted to double the lead. Crediton hit back and did hit the bar late on, but the 2-1 success was no more than Wasps deserved.
